Bulgaria to boost EU off-duty wine export

Date: 25.02.2006

The European Union has increased the quotas of off-duty import of Bulgaria-made wine.

The change is part of the agreement signed by Bulgaria and the EU in Brussels concerning mutual preferential trade concessions on certain types of wine, Bulgarian Foreign Affairs Ministry announced.

Under the accord, Bulgaria will be entitled to export 4,200 hectoliters of sparkling bottled wines, which is more than double compared to the current quota of 1,800 hectoliters.

The Balkan country, which anticipates its EU entry in ten months, will be allowed to export 535,000 hectoliters of bottled wines made of fresh grapes. Until now the EU quota stood at 485,000 hectoliters.

However, the quota of non-bottled wines was agreed to remain unchanged - 195,000 hectoliters.

The agreement signed in all 20 official languages of the EU will enter into force along with the accession of Bulgaria to the bloc, when the country will become part of the common European market.
